KAGOSHIMA PREFECTURE

Steeped in history, and exhibiting dramatic, volcanic behaviour, Kagoshima boasts hot springs, national parks and a chain of delightful islands that runs southwards into the East China Sea, including Yakushima and Amami Oshima, which seem a world away from the stereotypical image of hyper-modern Japan. Stop by the pretty town of Tatsugo for a heady mix of nature and culture.
